    Hi,
    To be eligible for SDP it will depend on what other benefits, if any you're claiming because it's not paid with your PIP award.
    You must be claiming either Income Related ESA/JSA or Income Support. No one must be claiming carers allowance or carers element of Universal Credit for looking after you.
    If you're claiming Universal Credit or New style ESA then you won't be able to claim SDP.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Then you will be able to claim SDP based on the information you've given here. To claim you will need to ring ESA and ask to fill out the IS10 form. If your mum also claims a means tested benefit mentioned above (or pension credit) and no one claims carers allowance or carers element of UC for looking after her than she will also be able to claim SDP.
    I'm assuming that no other adults live with you?
